    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I take a birth control pill and this past week I should be on my period. I have not had it yet, but I have had the flu for the past week and half and taking medicine for my symptoms. Could having the flu prevent me from having my period? And should I continue with the medicated pills when I'm suppose to or wait to have my period and then start up the pills again?

    when you take any kind of medicine while on the pill, the meds can possibly throw the effect of the birth control pill off.. you could have very well conceived while taking your b/c pill and the meds from being sick. Either take a HPT or make an appt to see your doctor to find out for sure.
